#MKR recap – GRAND FINAL (Tue 27/03/12)

Leigh & Princess Jen - My Kitchen Rules 2012

My Kitchen Rules - Mon-Thu 7:30pm, Ch7 http://au.tv.yahoo.com/my-kitchen-rules/ Here we are. We made it. The My Kitchen Rules Grand Final. After weeks of frenzied cooking, there's so much to remember and so much to forget. It seems so long ago that the 12 teams assembled to be dispersed across the country to deliver their instant restaurants and separate the wheat from the chaff and the teams from the West Australians. So much chaos, so much bitchiness, and so much fun. It all comes down to this - the battle of the South Australians Nic & Rocco vs Leigh & Princess Jen. If there's one thing we can all be happy about it's that there's no Ke$ha to serenade us tonight. The teams walk in, dressed in their chef whites and blacks, and it's ready to rumble time. "I can't believe how far we've come," says Leigh after walking in from the … [Read more...]

#MKR recap – 2nd semi-final (Mon 26/03/12)

Nic, Rocco, Carly, Emily - My Kitchen Rules 2012

My Kitchen Rules - Sun-Tue 7:30pm, Ch7 http://au.tv.yahoo.com/my-kitchen-rules/ Kitchen HQ is still on fire, but that's OK as the place is well insured. Last night we saw lots of grunting, chopping and passive aggression from Megan & Andy and Leigh & Princess Jen. The SA girls triumphed over the Tasmanian couple as there are no OzTAM boxes in our island state and so to include them in a state v state final is pointless. Besides, they didn't serve any gravel in their food. They're the two favourite teams of the competition so the montage has to reflect just how much they're loved. Tonight's battle royale between the Romeos of South Australia and the Juliets of Victoria will see blood on the kitchen floor as they scale the lofty heights of the semi-final #2 mountain in search of a gut-wrenching victory. Someone will have to win, and … [Read more...]

The final four teams - My Kitchen Rules 2012

My Kitchen Rules - Mon-Thu 7:30pm, Ch7 http://au.tv.yahoo.com/my-kitchen-rules/ Chop, chop, chop, chop. We've halved the contestant roster and now with four teams to go (and four episodes including this one) we're on song for a finish of gargantuan proportions. I'm hoping it involves Steve dressed as a giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man stumbling through New York with an intention to destroy Manhattan. Who ya gonna call? It doesn't really matter as it's never gonna happen... or is it? They have to decide who's going to face off in the final and whoever can stop this monster makes as much sense as any other decision this series. Chop, chop - let's get this party started, O Lady of the Dollar-Signed name. "From day one, our goal was not to go out first," says Megan, who walks in first holding Andy's hand. She's always been a … [Read more...]

#MKR recap (Sun 11/03/12)

Megan & Andy - My Kitchen Rules 2012

My Kitchen Rules - Mon-Thu 7:30pm, Ch7 http://au.tv.yahoo.com/my-kitchen-rules/ Previously, on My Kitchen Rules... some old guys lost a cooking battle against some young girls, but who has time to live in the past?! Tonight we're off to Ingham in North Queensland - the "heart of sugarcane country" - where the teams have to ply the toothless locals with sweet treats and fend off hordes of redneck kids. This is Katter country, and this is tonight's MKR... Firstly, how do we know one of the major industries in Ingham is sugar? Do the sweeping shots of canefields and cane trains not give it away? Is it the endless line of obese people outside the diabetes clinic? Who can say - it's all rich tapestry. David & Scott (Qld) help set the scene as they're basically locals. They love tropical North Queensland and mixing tropical fruit with … [Read more...]

#MKR recap (Wed 07/03/12)

Megan & Andy - My Kitchen Rules 2012

My Kitchen Rules - Mon-Thu 7:30pm, Ch7 http://au.tv.yahoo.com/my-kitchen-rules/ With Steve & Helen safe after being selected as the People's Choice, and Peter & Gary up for elimination this week, it's a battle royale between the other teams to ensure they don't have to face off with the bitchiest gays in the village. "I want to see justice done," says Peter. Don't we all, mate. Pete & Manu address the teams, telling them they want something "surprising and clever on the plate" from today's 30 minute rapid cook-off. Carla complains immediately, offering "you can't even get a pizza cooked and delivered to you in 30 minutes, let alone a meal that's gonna impress". Good to see her sights set high in this challenge. The twist in today's first challenge is only one team member will cook - the other will sit on a stool, remaining hands off. … [Read more...]

#MKR recap (Thu 01/03/12)

Kitchen HQ - My Kitchen Rules 2012

My Kitchen Rules - Mon-Thu 7:30pm, Ch7 http://au.tv.yahoo.com/my-kitchen-rules/ The teams are cooking for the first time in Kitchen HQ, which can mean only one thing - we're just not sure what that is yet. Competitive cooking will be the winner on the night, that's for sure. As it's the first time cooking in Kitchen HQ, everyone gets to tell us that this is their first time cooking in Kitchen HQ. Pete & Manu also get to tell us the same thing. Importantly, Simon & Meg (NZ) and Carly & Emily (Vic) have immunity, and Thomas & Carla (Vic) are already up for elimination, so the remaining 8 teams are cooking for their lives in a sort of new-age, gladiatorial, "whisks at 20 paces" pyramid challenge where the worst team will face off with T&C on Monday to see who goes home. It's announced everyone will be cooking with one of the few … [Read more...]
